The RCA High Performance team is gearing up for an Integration camp in Victoria, BC from February 18-24th. RCA will welcome over fifty NextGen rowers to the National Training Centre for a week of high performance training.
The primary objective of the camp is to immerse these rowers in the National Training Centre daily environment and provide athletes with guidance around the RCA training and technical objectives leading into spring. A secondary objective is to evaluate the athlete pool for U23’s and other upcoming junior events.
”This is a great opportunity to get our up and coming athletes together on the water with the National Training Centre athletes. Many of our current Senior team athletes reflect on the opportunities they had as a younger athlete to train with senior team as being formative in their development. We want to thank local clubs including Shawnigan Lake School, University of Victoria and Victoria City Rowing Club for their support with resources for this camp.”
Athletes were selected based on the 2017 National Rowing Championship results, RADAR scores from November and HP coach recommendations.
Best of luck to all the RCA NextGen athletes!
